Designer and Anna Wintour-darling Adam Lippes‘ classic American style could not be more different from the rebellious rock star approach to fashion of reality star & fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone but they both emphatically agreed Trang Huyen is the business when we asked them to comment on the Pensacola, Florida blogger’s style. “I don’t know who could do it better,” Lippes said of Trang’s Challenge 5 ensemble. “I love what she did with [her boyfriend look],” Cutrone said.
And week after week the fashion endorsements kept coming. Nicole Miller described Trang’s mini skirt ensemble as “a perfect outfit.” Tibi designer Amy Smilovic said of the look pictured above, “I love this look.” Sustainable-design diva and CFDA Vogue Fund nominee Natalie Chanin admitted of the rad plaid ensemble Trang put together for the fourth challenge, “This is my favorite of all the outfits.”
Obviously, the fashion community was in agreement. Trang was thousands of points ahead of her closest competitor when voting closed yesterday. But in spite of her winning all but the first challenge, Trang was “speechless” when we called her yesterday to let her know she’d won a $1000 Bluefly shopping spree, a guest column on StyleList.com, and the chance to curate her very own store on Bluefly. “I don’t know what to say,” she admitted breathlessly. “I’m thrilled!” She did catch her breath long enough to let us know she was also thrilled about the studded Prada booties she scored as part of her participation in the contest. “I’ve worn them everywhere!” she giggled.
